Dave “Lil Dicky” Burd is looking for love in the FXX/Hulu series David Season 3, but we learn more about his origins with women in Episode 2. Written by Jordan Mendoza and directed by Kitao Sakurai, here is our synopsis of Harrison Ave.
[SPOILER ALERT: Spoilers ahead regarding Dave Season 3 Episode 2.]
Lil Dicky’s music video in “Dave” Season 3 Episode 2
Episode 2 of David explores Lil Dicky’s romantic origins and his crush on his childhood best friend, Brittany (Jane Levy). Throughout the song, Dave explains how close he and Brittany became and how he was ultimately brought into the friend zone by her. Just as the song reaches Dave’s memories of touching Brittany’s breasts, the music video switches to the episode’s plot, which revolves around Dave’s creative control over the music video and reconnecting with the real Brittany.
Lil Dicky’s fictional girlfriend Brittany is probably real
David tells the story of Lil Dicky’s rise to fame, but the show also explores other real aspects of the rapper’s life. From his childhood in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania to his relationship with Ally (Taylor Misiak), many aspects of the FXX/Hulu series are rooted in truth. That’s probably the case with the character Brittany and the story featured in the “Harrison Ave” music video. Whether or not the IRL friends called each other “Boobie” is unclear.
Episode 2 provides more context about Dave’s search for love
After his relationship with Ally ended, things weren’t the same for Dave romantically. Despite the groupie sex he’s had on tour, he’s looking for a committed relationship with another woman. By introducing Brittany in Episode 2, we partially discover why Dave is the way he is with his sexual partners.
“Five years as your absolute best friend and then what happened?” he tells Brittany. “You broke my heart so quickly for another shitty older guy. … It fucking killed me and it’s probably exactly why I’m the way I am today.”
“Harrison Ave” suggests that old Dave still lingers
During Season 3, Episode 2, Dave refuses to give creative control to any of the dozens of people working on his music video. This includes Emma (Christine Ko), the aspiring documentary filmmaker and his boyfriend.
This small but important plot point is reminiscent of the Dave we saw in Season 2 of the FXX/Hulu series – a self-absorbed guy whose sole focus was climbing the ladder of success with no regard for the people who helped him to push each rung up . Season 2 Dave wasn’t a nice guy, but by the end of the season he was connected to “Enlightened Dave,” who not only restored his creativity, but made the rapper realize what relationships were important in his life and career.
At the end of Harrison Ave all trace of old Dave is gone. Instead of giving in to an overwhelming need for control, he trusts Emma. “I have an idea how to get it into a shot pretty quickly,” she says of Dave’s Evolution of Man concept, which he insists he needs to maintain the video’s “effectiveness.”
“Do what you see,” he tells her. “I really trust you.” *insert collective sigh.*
